The question is: will this make me faster?

Thursday - July 21

I was having some knee pain in my left (good) knee today, so I decided to take the day off rather than push through it.

Wednesday - July 20

Run
  • 37m 30s
  • 5.00 miles
  • 07m 30s /Mi

Ran on the treadmill as it was approximately 100 degrees in the afternoon.

Tuesday - July 19

Bike
  • 1h 00m
  • 20.57 miles
  • 20.57 Mi/hr

Trainer ride. I didn't mention in the race comments that Tyler found a tire rub on my rear wheel. I think when they put the new tire on the back wheel, they needed to adjust the stay screws. So I had a minor tire rub. When I went to fix it, I also found a light brake rub. When I went to fix that, I had to take the wheel off, and the whole cassette fell off because the cap wasn't tightened properly. That explains my shifting problems. So hopefully, I'll have that all fixed for the next time. Everything seemed smooth today.

Monday - July 18

Run
  • 1h 27m 23s
  • 10.00 miles
  • 08m 44s /Mi

Hot run, even at 6 AM! It was 82 degrees, with a heat index of 90 when I left! It must have been close to a HI of 100 when I finished.

Sunday - July 17

Swim
  • 11m 45s
  • 546.81 yards
  • 02m 09s /100 yards

Yet another awful swim. Some woman in our heat thought she needed to zigzag her whole route, so she was running into me about every 15 seconds.

Bike
  • 39m 08s
  • 13.50 miles
  • 20.70 Mi/hr

Not bad on the bike, but should have been better. I need to push harder on the hills and through the sidewalks. It's hard to go any faster on those sidewalks.

Run
  • 22m 02s
  • 3.00 miles
  • 07m 20s /Mi

Pretty good run. I think I passed about 6 guys on the run, including one in my AG.

1:15:01 finishing time, 12th overall, 2nd in my AG. I continue to improve, but so do Tyler (3rd OA, 1st AG), and Doug (4th OA, 2nd AG), so I'm not gaining on them. I'm just glad they're not in my AG this year. Great race guys! Now, on to Pigman!

  • RACE DAY: Mayor's Triathlon

Saturday - July 16

Bike
  • 27m 45s
  • 7.30 miles
  • 15.78 Mi/hr

Rode the race course for the bike and run with Tyler and Doug. Very hot, almost 100 degrees.

Friday - July 15

Day off in preparation for the race on Sunday.
